Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A pair of board books by Debi Gliori features ursine stars. The final spread of Tickly Under There shows the cuddly cub and Mr. Bear frolicking on the floor: "Two waving arms/ two kicking legs/ and one very tickly tum!" Can I Have a Hug? follows Mr. Bear on his search for the best embrace. (Feb.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
The father bear in this board book counts fingers and toes while bathing his young cub. Body parts are the focus and kids will learn about eyes, noses, tongues, mouth, arms and legs and "one very tickly tum." It is all very sweet and will appeal to very young children. The pictures are bright and the limited number of pages is appropriate for kids with short attention spans. The fact that father bears play no role in raising their young will not be an issue for the intended audience. A companion book is entitled Can I Have a Hug? 2002 (orig. 1998), Orchard, $5.95. Ages 6 mo. to 3. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
